Oxford PhD & Lecturer: Tuition in Politics, English, History

I am currently finishing my DPhil (PhD) in International Relations at the University of Oxford, where I have also held the position of Lecturer, teaching second- and third-year students on the Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) course. I have been involved in interviewing prospective students for admission to Oxford. I hold a First Class honours degree in Politics and an MPhil (two-year Master's) in International Relations from the University of Oxford. My A Levels were in History, Art, Politics and English Literature (AAAA). I also have 10 A*'s at GCSE.

I have extensive experience helping students with GCSEs, A Levels, personal statements, undergraduate essays, and Master's and PhD theses. For prospective university students in Politics, History or English I am able to offer tailored programmes of study based on my experience teaching at the Universities of Oxford and London. I can help with specific GCSE, A Level, IB or Pre-U modules and courses, as well as give more general advice on essay structure, revision and improving writing style and argument.

I offer a tailored programme for those learning English as a second language, from beginner's to advanced levels, with a specialism in teaching academic writing in the humanities and social sciences. And as a graduate of the Royal Court Theatre's Young Writer's Programme, I'm also able to help students with Drama – and creative writing more broadly.

My own academic specialisms are theories of international relations, nationalism and globalization. My regional specialisms are Africa (particularly West Africa), Russia, the US and the Middle East. I am a specialist in twentieth-century history, especially the Cold War, the Soviet Union and decolonization. I have also worked and published extensively in the field of development studies. These are subjects which I am happy to teach in detail to students at any level.

My teaching philosophy is based upon the recognition that every student is different and requires a unique approach tailored to their needs. I have extensive experience at Oxford giving undergraduate tutorials; I base my teaching on the tutorial method. I believe that students perform best when they are treated as intellectual equals, with a positive, warm, encouraging and creative approach.

I have an extended DBS check dated 11 July 2016.

Mr Musab's Lessons.

Mr.Musab was our teacher during the Cambridge immerse international relations programme. Dreading our first lesson due to reviews of previous teachers from other students, we anticipated a dull series of lessons. Mr Musab, however, engaged us all from the first moments of the class. His ability to connect with younger generations and enrich our passion for the subject of politics with his genuine passion allowed us to delve into the fields of politics and international relations and ponder global issues from multiple perspectives. He structured his lessons interactively, encouraging participation with discussions and debates. Every assignment enhanced our thinking as did every discussion he held. There is not another teacher who taught me as much in such a short period of time, nor a teacher that intensified my passion for any subject the amount that Mr.Musab was able to.

Amazing tutor!!

Musab was a very dedicated tutor who helped me strengthen my personal statement as well as deepen my knowledge of politics. He responded almost instantly and was in constant contact with me ensuring my learning was the priority. I would honestly recommend him to anyone who's looking not just for a tutor, but someone to mentor them and aid their development. He's really passionate about what he teaches as well as being extremely intelligent and understanding - the ideal combination!
